Given the terrible predictions for the future of coral reefs in the face of ocean warming and acidification, I'm wondering if more coral workers and their organisations should be showing some commitment and leadership  to becoming carbon neutral. I've been carbon neutral for over fifteen years but am yet to find another reef coral worker (or indeed any scientist/environmental manager) who is. Technically it's quite straightforward for humanity to become carbon neutral - the issues are social. One small step towards this goal is for individuals and organisations to show it can be done, is not difficult, expensive or requiring any lifestyle sacrifice. Leading by example. So, along those lines, are there any carbon neutral  individuals or their organisations on this list? It would be great for a survey - the upcoming icrs is the perfect venue?
